Bill Watrous Jazz Festival

March 29-30

The SHSU Bill Watrous Jazz Festival is a competitive, educational event. High school and college jazz bands perform every 30 minutes throughout the day and receive critique sheets from each of the nationally known jazz educators and for the educational benefits that result from hearing other groups perform. Awards will be announced and presented during the SHSU Jazz Ensemble closing performances with Bill Watrous and featured guests. This adds an element of excitement to the festivities and recognizes superior individual achievement.
